Ray J and Kim Kardashian are going to be close again; well, geographically if not romantically. Ray J is apparently planning to live next to Kim Kardashian as he’s just put in a $2.7 million offer to buy a house in Kim’s neighborhood: Hidden Hills, California. When he moves into the house, he will literally be eight doors down from Kanye and Kim.
If you don’t know why this is kind of a big deal, you’re probably part of the 1% of people on the planet who don’t know about the sex tape Kim released with Ray J: which is what skyrocketed Kim and the rest of the Kardashians into superstardom.
Ray J and Kim continued dating for a while, but things didn’t work out and they went their separate ways; of course, after they had both milked their sex tape for all they could.
Kim and Kanye haven’t been living in the neighborhood for long; they bought their mansion only last year. Oh, and it only cost them a measly $20 million.
The mansion comes with a ton of rooms, a guest house and two pools. Though Ray J’s home doesn’t cost nearly as much, it still comes with 3 horse stalls. Let’s hope the Love and Hip Hop Star likes horses.
The exclusive gated estate is not just home to Kimye and Ray J; other celebrities that are Ray J’s soon-to-be neighbors are Jennifer Lopez and Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner.
Ray J gave the neighborhood a look on Friday afternoon with David Weintraub, his business manager, before making the offer.
As you would expect, there was a lot of reaction to Ray J’s decision. To defend himself, the rapper/porn star/actor said that the hood was already his home. He has apparently lived in the vicinity much longer than Kim, so to him, Kim’s the one moving into his turf.
It’s inevitable that Ray J will meet Kim, Kanye and Kris. It will be quite interesting to see their reactions to each other: Kim seeing her ex and the reason she got famous enough to nab Kanye; Kanye seeing the guy who slept with his wife and the mother of his child; and Kris Jenner looking at the reason for her children’s popularity with probably mixed feelings. Ray J is definitely going to have an interesting time in Hidden Hills.
